Love Cheese? Madame Fromage's Adventures in Cheese: How to Explore It, Pair It, and Love It, from the Creamiest Bries to the Funkiest Blues has everything anyone would like to know about it. Tanaya Darlington is a “cheese genius” and seems to exist because of cheese. Anyone who loves cheese and wants to get to know it better will want to pick up this fun book to learn everything there is to know about cheese and more.
Who knew that there are not only hundreds of kinds of cheese, but that there is so much to learn about it. This book takes readers on tours around the world with cheese as the main topic. The book features cute illustrations (unfortunately no actual photographs), which give the book an almost magical tone. It covers the history of cheese (including a cheese timeline dating back to 5000 BC), ingredients used in cheese, and different kinds of cheese that all of us should know about and want to taste.
The prose is well-written, fascinating, and witty at times. Madame Fromage is someone most of us would like to know. Although this book only includes a few real recipes and some “sort of” recipes, it does include wine pairings and other information on serving cheese, along with cheeseboard ideas. It’s a great reference to have on hand, and for cheese aficionados, will be a much-used reference. Fun! Fun! Fun!
